news and comment live from moscow this is all see with me here national probable hello and a very warm welcome to the program then rests in turkey has claimed a second life police already facing widespread criticism for using excessive force are being accused of being behind the killing of a young man she is really going to prison istanbul has the details. twenty two year old man did die after his sustaining a head wound during the night's protests in the south of turkey in the city of kentucky and now out of the protesters are saying the shot came apparently from a police car however this information we have to stress this hasn't been confirmed yet so we have to wait and see for at least somewhat official results whether or not this indeed was a case of severe police brutality earlier on sunday there was a young man also died after a car slammed into a crowd of protesters so far these are two confirmed deaths but the people on the
6:02 am
street that we have been speaking to they're saying that they have personally seen least four or five people are dead more than sixteen hundred people have already been injured and more than a thousand arrested there is more and more people coming out on taksim square going to get the park just in istanbul alone the number of sing creasing and most of them are really peaceful protesters and we have talked to one of the young lawyers association representatives who explained to us why people continue to flood the streets in turkey voicing their protest of the current government there were a lot of groups who not only low years here are some doctors but does the organization of the community of the nation they're asking the government to resign they become a union here do to do to do illegal acts of the government now their decision is somewhat different in a different part of the city just a couple of kilometers from here and protesters there are actually targeting the prime minister's office says the police are retaliating with tear gas water cannons
6:03 am
rubber bullets plastic bullets prime minister erdogan is actually out of the country he's on a trip to morocco and speaking on monday he said that the situation in the country in turkey is calm he has also disregarded the words of the turkish president good who called off to end police brutality and is actually meeting with the representatives of the top opposition parties in turkey in order to try and solve the situation however prime minister erdogan has said that she doesn't understand what the president says but he said. the protestors message has been heard from members of the public sector also going out in protest today so this just adds to the magnitude of protests that we're seeing there so really the protest movement in turkey does look like it's only gaining momentum. so are. in istanbul closely watching the balance in turkey so you can follow her on twitter for updates and latest developments demonstrations across turkey have condemned the unprecedented use of force by police and this photo appears to show
6:04 am
a woman being pepper sprayed in the face in istanbul last week the image has become iconic of the indiscriminate brutality the police are accused of witnesses describe cities becoming walls others with innocent bystanders including children among those being tear gassed rights groups have joined the nation of the security forces and this photo apparently shows the i.d. numbers of police helmets have been obscured or even covered the journalist andrew finkel who's covered events in the region extensively things the protests were mainly a response to the crackdown. position or movement forming against the government willy outside the confines of the traditional political party's feeling which we're seeing on the streets is very much the result of the way the police handled you know sit down tree hugging protest in the center but istanbul square had they not gone in with tear gas instead tents on fire and batons blazing then
6:05 am
a lot of this outrage which we're seeing would not have happened some of the outrage would have happened a lot of it is frustration at the way the government has been ruling by the true love its government and what is the solution to this problem the solution to this problem is not you know people standing on tanks and. you know the storming the presidential palace the solution would be for the government to go to a poll. washington is deploying patriot missiles and f. sixteen fighter jets to jordan the u.s. central command says they'll be used in military drills fast and may remain afterwards in a nation which borders we're told syria is fueling concern that tensions in the
6:06 am
region could escalate even process he's promised looks now at what's behind a move the u.s. assist is only aimed at helping and that why. well it's certainly not really about jordan what we do know is that the deployment of a patriot missile battery and if sixteen fighter jets to jordan comes amid escalating international tension over the syrian conflict what the u.s. is saying is that the weapons are meant to be part of a military drone but it has said that they could remain in jordan afterwards to counter the threat posed by the syrian civil war now this comes several months since nato deployed patriot missile batteries in turkey along its one of our border there with syria and although the batteries are designed to intercept scud missiles they could potentially be employed to enforce a no fly zone and certainly this is the indication from recent reports that say that the white house has asked the pentagon to draw up plans for a no fly zone inside syria that would be enforced by the united states and other countries such as silence and britain according to old contracts with the syrian
6:07 am
government moscow is planning to send its three hundred anti aircraft missiles to syria to balance the situation there as a deterrent against foreign military intervention syria is reportedly planning to place orders for mig fighter jets as a follow up to this now this has made the u.s. and its allies furious the latest move by syria is being seen as a bid to challenge the european union powers who recently lifted the arms embargo on the syrian rebels. prosecutors on day one a whistleblower bradley manning's trial say he knowingly aided the enemy by handing over secret cables to wiki leaks the army private is responsible for the biggest security leak in u.s. history and faces life in prison and for more he's also he's under blake. private bradley manning twenty five year old army intelligence officer is accused of giving military files to the website wiki leaks in turn aiding the enemy according to
6:08 am
military prosecutors those prosecutors said that when private manning uploaded files the anti-secrecy website wiki leaks he did so with the intent to harm very good or to protect now supporters of manning gather here to a rally in support of the soldier in me that they deem a robot whistleblower but prosecutors painted a much different picture by the bed and when army prosecutors delivered their opening remarks they said that private manning was someone who knowingly and willingly went to wiki leaks with the purpose of bringing harm to the united states now something that was very very significant that we saw here after three years of waiting for the court martial finally get underway was that prosecutors really tried to bring a connection between private manning and joined us on the publisher of wiki leaks now asuncion his attorney michael ratner and i have spoken at length three years now about how this trial the trial against the american soldier is going to be used to bring charges against wiki internal assad could be extradited to the u.s.
6:09 am
and perhaps even sentenced to die so the way things wrap up here and perhaps twelve weeks time is going to really play an important part in deciding how the u.s. goes against wiki leaks and in the last couple of weeks we've actually seen all more and more examples lately of u.s. prosecutors going against journalists and other news agencies for so-called leaks defense attorney for private manning portrayed him as a hero david bloom's hopes that the u.s. government will realize that this is a person who had no intent on aiding the enemy and simply wanted to expose crimes that he thinks the world has better. i'll see dot com is reporting on the manning trial has made it the time to get over her current time i website was down for around five hours before coming back online the group which claimed responsibility for. they did it because of coverage of bradley manning and julian assange from the cold traitor and cyber terrorist respectively the same organization carried out
6:10 am
a similar denial of service attack in august last year when the wiki leaks founder launched his interview program here on s.r.c. . so this video u.s. soldiers are talking iraqi civilians has become infamous the pilots demonstrated little noticeable remorse when they realized they had accidentally killed children one blowing up a van trying to rescue reporters and the bradley manning's leaks contained plenty of other information the documents exposed operations at the notorious background detention facility in afghanistan they revealed the prison numbers and transfers at a facility which has seen allegations of widespread torture and there are descriptions of unreported friendly fire incidents between coalition and afghan forces these leaks also showed that fifteen thousand more civilians died in iraq than previously thought activists say they make up eighty percent of all deaths and it's revealed that people not deemed
6:11 am
a threat were held and tortured or gone tunnel bait to extract intelligence despite the u.s. claiming the prison is only for dangerous militants and david swanson is a peace activist who says it was in these documents that were doing harm. this is an unprecedented legal case being brought by the government arguing that making secrets public through the media in dangers the united states people by aiding the enemy that is if you make something public any whistleblower any media outlet any were reporter or journalist because some enemy can get ahold of public information you have aided the enemy and they will they will bring evidence that osama bin laden had in his possession information that came out through bradley manning's leak they will not as far as anyone knows present any evidence that any harm resulted from this to any civilian or soldier in stark contrast to the harm being brought upon so many civilians and soldiers by the u.s.
6:12 am
government's actions that this pushback against bradley manning helped end the occupation of iraq which was a great harm to the u.s. people as well as to the people of iraq i think that he should be awarded the nobel peace prize there's ition at many nobel dot org to do that he's one of the nominees he actually deserves that he actually qualifies under no bills will unlike some other recent recipients i don't think that whistleblowing should be punished let's have a sentence not in gets it will be counted by one hundred and twelve days after a charge ruled he had suffered harsh treatment during his initial detention three years ago united nations a torture of one mendez looked into mining streetman and that he never received the sense from the u.s. government. that we can call it an investigation but i certainly engaged the united states government. to help me understand why he would be held in solitary
6:13 am
confinement first in iraq and then in the quantico marine corps base here near washington the information that i was given for the first eight months i considered insufficient i issued a report that i submitted with equal rights because of all the united nations in which i said that his eight month old son until you can find them was unjustified we were sworn in through we that it was pursuant to the regulations that the military applies in court martial proceedings and that it had to do with the gravity of the charges against it we've seems to me that before someone is found guilty it's already this rule of law and so to an extreme regime. only because the charges are soon the other man that they gave me was or they called the ones in the army but they did not explain what kind of harm would be grand. so to cover your hero nazi unfits and daily the u.k.

6:16 am
putting lives of chris. it's a system unlike any other one of the world's largest publicly funded health services but britain's n.h.s. is facing growing problems austerity means cuts to vital services at a time when demand for their services is it an all time high perhaps more concerning for many is a raft of scandals regarding substandard care at n.h.s. hospitals around the country february saw the publication of the francis report which looked into failings of care at the mid staffordshire hospital near birmingham where over one thousand people may have died needlessly as a result of patient neglect the outgoing head of the n.h.s. who presided over the scandal has even been dubbed the man with no shame there's been accusations of failings of care at all the hospitals around the country gary walker is the former chief executive of the united lincolnshire hospitals trust he lost his job after trying to alert his bosses to the fact that patients were risk
6:17 am
gary you tried to tell your bosses what was happening what went wrong at the hospital where you go back in two thousand and nine like today we had hospitals that were. stretched we had something like ninety nine percent occupancy and we said well in that situation with so many patients we couldn't deliver the targets anymore the response back was well you need to deliver the targets whatever the demand and if you can't do it we'll get rid of you and anybody else who says the same at the very beginning it's about politicians. targets to be delivered and it's about civil servants doing whatever it takes to do that now you say you were silenced why. because i raise concerns with david nicholson the head of the n.h.s. i raised concerns with senior people in the department of health and all of. that information never to become public we've got more cuts on the way what's the future of the n.h.s. can the national health service get over this i think unless you go on
6:18 am
a study you can't convince people why there needs to be so you. i mean we know there needs to be twenty billion pounds a year in the n.h.s. now that's twenty percent of the budget so that means you know one in five hospitals potentially need to close so i think what's happening is this is a slight revolution where the wealth are getting up in large numbers and saying we can't treat as individuals anymore and satyrs you now have got too many people raising concerns you need to do something very welcome many thanks for your comment on a new report out from the british medical journal says that patients are more likely to die if they have operations near the end of the week. artsy london the monsters of global finance are finding it hard to prop up the idea that austerity is the answer to the world's economic doldrums and highs and stays are heard but look at a new fiscal trend. forget keynesianism or austrian school the only economic theory today is potemkin ism according to wikipedia the phrase
6:19 am
potemkin village was originally used to describe a fig village built only to impress the phrase a values typically in politics and economics to describe any construction a literal or figurative built soley to deceive others into thinking that some situation is better than it really is potemkin is policies include quantitative easing interest rate cutting market appeasing boondoggle building help to buy schemes george. well of course everybody's talking about this potemkin village in northern ireland built for the g eight northern ireland is building a fake town with government money to make it look like austerity work the butchers business has been replaced by a picture of a butcher's business across the road is a similar tale a spall business premises has been made to look like an office supply store so as you see as well from this image here this is the fake butcher shop it's not actually a thriving business it's a dilapidated rundown business. and
